Gorilla crab with eggs..

I think these are gorilla crabs.. Hairy just not a black tip.. It's got dark claws and a pinkish to red body with hair all over...Anyway, a couple of these crabs have eggs under their bellies. Is this gonna be a problem? I've left the crabs alone till now but I've noticed that some are getting rather large..I try to feed them hunks of shrimp and scallop as well as the fish so that they don't run rampant in the tank, but I will eventually get them out, it's just that there are alot of them and now with the eggs I"m concerned... Will these guys reproduce well? I mean will the babies that hatch gro to be food or full grown adults?

its not likley that they will turn into baby crabs they will get sucked up by filters or just not have the right conditions to make it past the first stage
